Moon Man (Train Flight, #1)

Moon Man (Train Flight, #1) I very much enjoyed reading Moon Man It s a very good book and it s so different to anything I ve read before I cannot wait to read the other titles in the series I couldn t put the book down until I had finished This book is definitely worth reading. This is a fun and imaginative Christian Sci Fi novel withthan a passing resemblance to Dr Who Fans of The Polar Express may enjoy this tale of a young girl swept away on a mysterious train to places unknown The character of the Captain is at once alien and yet familiar The story moves quickly without feeling rushed While the target audience for this series is intended for juvenile teen and Young Adult readers, this book would appeal to a number of adult readers as well The faith of the characters is presented in a natural, realistic manner without preaching The Christian world view shown in the book reminded me of that of the Narnia chronicles I enjoyed this book and I would recommend it. This book is a great book to read It s full of diverse and colourful characters and unique monsters and villans It constantly keeps you in suspense, making it a book you just don t want to put down This is a debut Christian Sci Fi novel for this Author, and it is delightful to see her confidence in her writing grow as the novel progresses.The faith of the characters is presented in a natural, realistic manner without preaching , and the Christian world view shown in the book reminded me of that of The Chronicles of Narnia Despite the characters being nicely developed, I just could not connect with the female lead character This could be because I like my leads to be decisive and strong, someone I can connect to and travel with, throughout the book, not a procrastinator who waits for things to happen to them, then reacts accordingly However, where the female lead was too wishy washy for my tastes, The Captain made up for her lack of personality, and it was this character that boosted the thumb rating for this book, he was a truly memorable character with a quirky sense of humour that managed to entertain.The descriptions in the novel are well done, however, I felt like I was reading a Dr Who novel at some points, as the Whovian influence is very apparent throughout the book There are also other influences at work in this novel, which I am sure readers will recognise as they progress through the book or the series But despite these influences, or maybe because of them who knows, the story is well written and moves along a fast, but unrushed, pace.Overall, this book was a pleasure to read in the sense that I enjoyed the adventure The novel was well written, fun and imaginative I probably wouldn t read anyin the series, not because it wasn t good it just wasn t my thing I enjoy hard core Sci fi fantasy that examines the technologies and motivations of the characters withdepth, and there really wasn t much of either with this novel, possibly because of the Christian influence.I would highly recommend this novel to those in the target audience, juvenile teen and Young Adult readers, but I would also recommend it to adult readers who enjoy Christian fiction like my Mother In Law , or those just wanting a quick fun read.Originally reviewed on This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License. I really enjoyed this book I love the idea of travelling through time and space in a train This also interests me because of the location it s where I live and it s great having the Christian content as well Can t wait for the next instalment. This book was a real adventure to read I kept wanting to turn the pages and keep reading because it was quite easy to read and easy to follow, yet exciting and fast paced at the same time The chapters are nice and short most of the time and the characters are so entertaining. I really liked it I must say that I m not usually into reading fiction books I find it hard enough making time to read the factual stuff I want to read But I read this book on the recommendation of my sister I found it compelling all the way through I had trouble putting it down sometimes it was the source of a couple of late nights I sensed a flavour of influence from Doctor Who in the story and suspect that the author is a bit of a Doctor Who fan not that that is a bad thing I too am a bit of a Whovian I thought the characters were intreguing and I especially like The Captain s little quirks which surface throughout the story I was also intregued by the occasional mention of The Captain s special friend who, while he is not physically present, is a very present and tangible source of strength and encouragement to the characters when they need to stand firm in the face of fear and danger While I think I know who The Captain is referring to, I want to find outabout this friend It was a good enjoyable read.
